The news that innocent life sentence prisoner Ray Gilbert has been sent back to Woodhill prison from the therapeutic regime at Grendon came as a blow to his supporters, who had hoped that Grendon might have been a sign that he was on his way out after serving 26 years.
At least Ray is on normal location at Woodhill, instead of the intense and punitive Close Supervision Unit, where he spent some years before his move. Prior to that, he had been passed around like a parcel from one segregation unit to another for much of the quarter a century he has been in prison. He is now 11 years over the 15-year tariff he was given.
